So basically this was a project that I had to do to pass my Malaysian studies. Believe me when I tell you it is the stupidest piece of coconut subject that I actually NEED TO PAY to sit for. And I thought Pendidikan Moral a.k.a Moral studies back in form 5 is ridiculously stupid enough but MS wins it all (because I was forced to pay RM500 for it) oh wait! I still have Moral studies (again!) to take which will cost me another RM500 in a few months time *banging the head on the wall*.
However I met a group of amazing people in my life because of this stupid subject and they gave me so much laughter during the period of time I was with them. ^^ Their company was definitely something I will miss and am missing right now :)
So yea, going for a study trip on our own was part of the requirement to pass the paper and we chose to go to Kuantan which is around 3 hours drive from KL.
I have never been to Kuantan before, so it was definitely something exciting and the fact that we drove there (okay, they drove there, I just sit) gave us much more freedom to do things.
the driver and co-driver (are'nt they sweet ;)
We stopped at Sungai Lembing before heading to the city. Sungai Lembing is... Lets just say it is a very 'natural' place. Once you are there, the air is cleaner, people are nicer and ever the sky was filled with stars during the night time. It was beautiful and almost enchanting when I looked up the sky~
LOOK! its a deer and we are not even in a zoo!
Until we saw this. T.T
(Deer meat curry puff)
Went to a tin mine which is some famous tourist location actually cause I actually saw them advertise it on rapid KL tv. lol. It was rather exciting when we went in cause we sat on this train like thingy that the miner used to use but basically it was just a really long and deep cave. lol. Did'nt see any tin though. It was just a really long walk. lol.
Pulling a 20kg weight like a boss~ lol. Look at JF's epic expression.
Next we went to this place known as crystal house. I was actually hoping to see shiny bling bling crystals but well, they are'nt like how i expected it to be at all. lol. The uncle who build this crystal house was once a miner or something and he told us that he did'nt know what these 'rocks' were when he first discovered them and then he knew what it is and well, WALAH~
crystals? Go figure.
The most heart attack moment was crossing this really long bridge that made out of planks and to be told that the bridge was actually broken and repaired recently did not help. Mind you, I was not afraid of the height but I CAN'T SWIM! While we were crossing it, gazillion motorcycle will cross the bridge as well and each time it passed us by, my heart stopped for a second there.
scary shaky bridge, CONQUERED!
We stayed at a homestay 'bungalow' place which has the total kampung feel. The chingyus were just really fun and entertaining people. Such joy to be part of the group :)
Next morning we went to the famous RAINBOW WATERFALL! Basically you sit at the back of a Hilux and the tour guide will drive you up the hill and then you have to jungle trek for another 45 minutes or so to reach the waterfall. The ride was damn awesome because we were singing songs and flirting with other strangers who were sitting in another car. LOL. and THEY RESPONDED! wtf. haha
Good luck to you when muddy water splash on your face and good luck to your butt too.
The jungle trekking part was very thrilling because you get to cross river where the depth was basically up to your chest? I was just super worried that some leeches decided to have me as their lunch the whole time because I wanna defend my title of never been bitten by leeches before! You have no idea how many medication I bought a day before to ensure that. lol
random picture of us when we are not in mud or dirty water.
I love the fresh air that you inhale throughout the adventure and honestly, you won't feel tired at all and when you see the waterfall and experience the water splashing down on your body, it was GREAT! able to see the rainbow made the adventure even more worth it. I must say, we had a very good and entertaining tour guide the whole time!
Left Sg. Lembing and went to Kuantan. I think Sg. Lembing is part of Kuantan??? Overall we left and went to the city!
It is a must to have SEAFOOD IN KUANTAN! oh gawd the food was good I could die! Later on a stroll at Teluk Cempedak which is some tourist hot spot as well for some jelly ice~!
the seafood restaurant is facing the sea ^^ If i am not wrong, the restaurant is call PAK SU! try it if you have a chance.
Teluk Cempedak nightlife~
surong photobomb! haha
Went for this 'kopitiam' style shop for breakfast the next day and apparently it's some famous shop and they have a branch in Kelantan/Terengganu (I dun remember). The food was sooooo good!
Tried batik painting on our own and I must say, I DO NOT HAVE ANY ARTISTIC SENSE. Even some of the guys' painting was better than mine T.T
I must say, ugliest drawing ever. lol.
can you guess which is mine?
Left Kuantan and first thing we do is to have dinner at Mid Valley. Suddenly the bright lights, concrete jungle and franchises are all back. lol.
It was really nice to leave the city and enjoy some time with mother nature once in awhile~ Never really a city girl anyway.
P.S I MISS YOU ALL OF YOU!
OKAY.... so maybe #wickham is right, I don't smile in my pictures. lol.
Present to you:
kher jia, set teng, sheuelee, surong and melody is probably bathing. lol and me with that fat things T.T
TOODLES~finals in a couple of days time!
